Doing Our Part to be a Catalyst for Change in Health and Human Services 

October 23, 2022

Venue: Conference

It was a pleasure connecting at the 2022 ISM Annual Conference & Expo. 

Our firm exists to help others. One of the many ways we do that is by partnering with our clients to navigate the challenges that come with IT in the health and human services sector.

Our Take Aways from the 2022 ISM Annual Conference & Expo 

It Starts with Procurement

Streamlining procurement efforts is the first step in planning ahead. Challenges can include changing requirements and regulations, increased demand for services, limited staff, funding uncertainties, and evolving technical environments. Starting early can help to mitigate these barriers.

Consulting Firms Give You an Extra Set of Hands

We understand when tasked with a larger project, like getting a new system in place, it can cause conflicting priorities. Working with an outside source, like a consulting firm, can allow you to delegate projects while still meeting deadlines.

Governance Empowers Ownership

“It’s not important who makes the decision. What’s important is who decides who makes the decision.”

Decision authority and task ownership are the main drivers of success. When these are assigned at the beginning, there is less confusion down the road.

Organizational Change Management Sets You Up for Success

Change is constant in government agencies. Anticipating the impacts of the changing conditions and expectations and responding with appropriate organizational change efforts makes all of the difference. By approaching it with an effective change readiness approach, it sets agencies up for success.
